Just a heads up. Sometimes there are consequences to being opinionated on the Internet. A few hours after posting my entry about the Sex: A Tell All Exhibition at The Museum of Science and Technology, I received an invitation from the producer of CBC radio’s Ottawa Morning to participate in a short, on-air debate about the merits of the exhibit with Dave Quist of The Institute For Marriage and Family Canada.

I was nervous as all get out, especially about the prospect of forming coherent sentences before 7:30 in the morning. But in the end, I think I did okay. At the very least I sounded like a human being*.

Some of you have already heard it, but if you missed it and you want to know how it all went down, you can listen to the clip here.

* Thank you, thank you, thank you to The MoMs and my friend/colleague Barbara for helping me prepare. Without them, my side of the discussion would have pretty much been “sEx mUSeuMs iS gOoD, bLaaArGH!”

    I thought you sounded very eloquent for that time of the morning!! I fear I can hardly form a sentence before I have my first cup of tea. Usually it’s just grunts. Lol

  2. Well done! Your point of view was measured and logical.

      Thank, Patti! Mr. Quist and I obviously disagree but he did keep the discussion respectful which made it easier to remain focused on expressing myself clearly.
